Mayor's Office

Every so often a bit of change, a new look, a different approach is a good thing. This month, we welcome you to the revamped and updated Program Guide. You’ll notice more graphics, more color and an attractive layout for both Recreation Department programs and Senior Scoop.

Community Changes

The changes are due to a focus group we consulted about what you’d like to see. Seniors asked for a variety of programs and told us how we can make Senior Scoop and the Active Senior Network even better.

For example, we’ve added a monthly speaker series and a weekly round table for you to discuss personal issues, such as caring for an aging parent or dealing with empty nest syndrome.

We’ve also added a computer class for seniors and pickup basketball games. We will continue to host most of our programs at the Berea Recreation Center but many of the new offerings are at Smith School, 535 Wyleswood Drive, where we have the space and more flexible facilities to accommodate our new programs.

Program Guide

Check out the details in this issue of the May 2018 Program Guide (PDF). If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Recreation Department; Michelle Skutt, the Active Senior Network program coordinator, or Daune Jaynes of Berea Community Outreach. Let us know how you like our new look and our new activities. We aim to make them fun, educational and inspirational.
